2011 Rural Assembly gathering: pre-meeting survey

Please take our pre-meeting survey

We are delighted to announce that the next gathering of the National Rural Assembly will be in St. Paul, Minnesota, on June 28-30 , 2011. Registration for this event is on a first come, first serve basis and will open on the National Rural Assembly website in February 2011.

As in the previous two gatherings of the National Rural Assembly, rural leaders and advocates will work to bring rural issues to the fore, build a stronger voice for rural America, and examine policy solutions that address the opportunities and challenges of America’s 55 million rural residents.

The National Rural Assembly Steering Committee is currently developing the agenda for the 2011 gathering and will draw on the expertise of Rural Assembly participants as we move forward. We are asking all potential attendees to take a brief survey. Your responses will directly influence the program agenda for the gathering.

You may learn more about Rural Assembly activities and process on our website, ruralassembly.org.

In the meantime, we thank you for taking this survey, and we look forward to seeing you in St. Paul.
